HOGWARTS AND ALL ...
I’m not quite sure how to react to the astonishing news that has today shaken the world of publishing.
It appears that the Harry Potter stories, supposedly created by J K Rowling, are in fact, simply a retelling of a collection of ancient folk tales extolling the adventures of Prince Anqq, an obscure boy-hero in Sumerian mythology.
The original stories, which Rowling would appear to have copied, can be found in a series of scrolls stored at the Museum of Antiquities in London, and similarities between the handsome young Sumerian Prince and Rowling’s character only came to light during a recent archiving exercise.
The words Prince and Harry have frequently appeared in scandalous press revelations but never before in quite this way.
To add to the bewilderment of the author’s host of fans, it has also been revealed that Rowling is actually a man, whose wife has, for years, provided a public “face” for the popular storyteller.
The Telegraph reports that neither Mr Rowling or his spouse were available for comment.
